Seafood lovers will soon have a new downtown haven. Following success at its 15-year-old Bee Caves location, Cafe Blue will open a second location downtown this fall. With fresh seafood flown in daily, the menu will feature creative coastal cuisine and an extensive wine list. Founder Pete Clark intends to combine quality seafood with a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere in the heart of the city. The new location will offer an impressive oyster bar, weekend brunch, Monday all-day happy hour and Wine Down Wednesday, serving half off all wine by the bottle, glass, or flight.
Wander Life Creamer
Following years of struggling with food intolerances yet not quite ready to give up her morning cup of joe, founder and local Austinite Kat Reagan Waldrip began her search for an organic, dairy-free creamer that was as ready to travel as she was. Dissatisfied with the options on the shelves, she created her own concoction using organic ingredients that didn’t require refrigeration. Combining coconut milk powder, date sugar, and cacao powder, Reagan was impressed with the taste and nutritional value of her creation. And with that, a star was born. Wander Life doesn’t believe dietary restrictions should ever hold you back, and with flavors like pumpkin spice and cacao, you’ll find living dairy-free has never been so delicious. Right now Wander Life Creamer is only available through their website, but keep an eye out for their arrival in local grocery stores soon.
